, it's vitaly important. this had political significance not just here in the united states but, also within afghanistan. you know, being able to come to president karzai, sign this agreement, show the afghan people that the united states is going to, you know, remain engaged in the region and, also send a compelling message to other neighbors who have metalled in afghan affairs but pakistan, you know, next door, that the united states is going to be hear and it's going to try to continue to help afghanistanyou know, next door, that the united states is going to be hear and it's going to try to continue to help afghanistan. >> thank you p.j. crawley forker assistant of state for public affairs. the president's announced trip comes four days before he officially kicks off his re-election campaign. here to discuss the strategic interest of the trip and, perhaps, a little bit of politics, too, is michael knott, the assistant secretary of defense for global strategic affairs in the obama administration now and then a prevention-off of public policy, form
. what can we do to produce jobs here in the united states. >> whether we like it or not, multinational corporations don't have duties to nations, they have duties to their shareholders. so we need a tax and regulatory climate that is more certain, more competitive. we need fewer regulation, but we need to enforce the ones we have. make our tax structure more competitive on an international basis. we need to encourage corporations to either invest for growth in jobs we need to repatriate for the overseas dollars to be invested here in the united states and we need to do what a lot of other countries do, and that is to partner with small and medium-sized businesses to help to export. >> i'm so bummed because i want to talk to you more about this and unfortunately, we're out of time but i want to have you back so we can dive into this. david walker. let's talk for a second though about budgets and values. about how our government should reflect the values that we the people they represent, hold dear. so today this house committee votes to cut food aide and healt
of the united states. do you still want to talk about the economy? so let me talk to the viewers. if i ask you whether democratic presidents or republican presidents created more jobs i wonder what you would say. well, just this week bloomberg news, which is far from a liberal mouthpiece provided a clearance. here it is. over the last 50 years, private-sector jobs increased much much more under democratic administrations than republican ones. are you surprised? there were 42 million jobs added in 23 years of democratic presidents versus only 24 million jobs added in 28 years of republican rule. you get that? democratic presidents created almost twice as many jobs in less amount of time. now, what about the market? surely under republicans, the market presidents the stockmarket, fared better than under those anti-business democrats? well lo and behold stocks invested under democrats produced nine times the return than during republican control of the white house. but wait. there is more. bloomberg also reported today that the united states posted a budget su
heard, if maggie hasson is not elected there will be no democratic women governors in the united states, not one. when i was pressurefresh out of law school, i had this burning desire to do something important and to have an impact in some way. but i didn't know what that impact would be. and i certainly never thought that i would run for office myself. in fact, if somebody had suggested it, i would have totally laughed out loud. sometimes, a door opens, and you have to gather the courage to run through it. so i was approached by friends who encouraged me to run for an open seat at that time was attorney general of michigan. for me it was a big risk. my friends, who were men affiliated with the democratic party, they encouraged me to take that risk as did my best friend and husband who gave me the final gentle push across the threshold. often, we women are risk-averse. i needed the push. now, more than ever young women need more seasoned women to provide that encouragement to take a risk to go for it. because once a glass ceiling is broken, it stays broken.
in the united states? >> yes i do. >> the comments opened up a big old can of worms, so big that president obama's stop strategist felt the need to discuss them. david axelrod said: so does all of that mean that the president's position is evolving, and that he will publicly support same-sex marriage. well for one you we're going to new york and turning to marc solomon. welcome inside the "war room." >> good to be here. >> so you think this was part of a strategy or just this -- you know, joe biden being the great joe biden? >> i think i was neither. i don't think it was part of a strategy, but i also think it was joe biden being very heart felt about what he really thinks, and i think when you watch the interview, and he talks about what marriage is and that it's about love and loyalty, i think he was really speaking from the heart, and that was meaningful. >> that's why we love him. so if the president and the vice president are saying the same thing as david axelrod said does it mean that the president is in favor of gay marriage? >> i don't think the president a
when they said they were going to be the first to allow the united states to default on its debt. and that's why it is so unbelievable that they are trying to replay that same movie, but that's what the speaker said. and if you look at the house respect budget that the speaker requires it would require an increase in the budget. >> yeah. >> it violates the rule the spoker put forward the other day, and it shows they have themselves all tied up in knots in a way that will hurt the american economy. >> if you are negotiating with people who came to washington for the purpose of shutting it down, saying you must not compromise, how do you negotiate with radicals? >> this is exactly the problem. and this is what is so important about this upcoming election. you have 98% of the republicans who have signed this pledge saying they refuse to close a single tax loophole ore eliminate a single tax subsidy whether it's for big oil companies or corporations that use the tax code to benefit themselves to ship jobs over seas, and they won't use one penny of that to re
country, and today may 9th, 2012, remember this day. it is a new era. the president of the united states publicly supported the ability to marry the person of our choosing. equality and personal freedom wrapped in red white and blue. isn't that magnificent freedom what true conservatives and libertarianing are clamoring for. libertarians you ought to be thrilled that the government will not be substituting its judgment for yours in matters of the heart. conservatives who have always been looking for ways to support monogamy, you should be grinning from ear-to-ear what an opportunity to support two-parent families, to help loving couples stay together right? and by the way lots of conservatives agree, dick cheney, laura bush ted olson, former rnc ken mellman, all of these other republicans all support people's freedom to marry the person they love regardless of gender. so today, president obama joined those republicans. he stepped off of squishy, wishy washy middle ground that so many political figures occupy and our president chose to occupy equality, to occupy free
of the united states publicly supported the ability to marry the person of our choosing, equality, and personal freedom wrapped in red, white and blue. isn't that magnificent freedom what true libertarians are clamoring for, who don't want the government to tell you to strap on seatbeltsar wear motorcycle helmets. you should be filmed that the government will not be telling you what to do in matters of the heart. you should be grinning from ear to ear. what an opportunity to support two parent families, to help loving couples stay together, right? and by the way, lots of conservatives agree, after all dick cheney, laura bush, cindy mccain, ted olsen former r.n.c. chairman melman, all these other republicans all support people's freedom to marry the person they love, regardless of gender. so today president obama joined those republicans. he stepped off the squishy wishy washy middle ground that so many political figures occupy on divisive tough issues and our president chose to occupy quality, freedom no matter the cost, and have no doubt, there will be cost. this will cost the president votes.
of the united states, and he is going to be out spent dramatically in this race, but what is going to happen in the future if you don't have an incumbent president, you don't have the ability to raise that money, and you are up against -- >> do you think he will lead a constitutional amendment? >> he has said jennifer and i am -- i know how determined he is, that he will pursue every avenue including a constitutional amendment if that's the best path to try to do something about this. this is not just a threat to a candidate or a party. this is a threat to a democracy. if he don't take this on, our country will be effected in a really profound and negative way. >> a threat to democracy. and now to my point as we just heard, republicans super pacs are going to be spending a billion dollars this election on top of what governor romney and the republican national committee were already going to spend. billions of dollars from a handful of billionaires with one goal to buy an election, all thanks to the supreme court and citizens united. this is sick. it is a perversion o
. i actually think that there was a limited amount that the united states could have done at that time. i don't know what the discussions with china were on that particular point, but i think that their one failing of the state department of is to think about the optics of this and so if there was any possible way for state department officers to stay with him in the house bill they should have done all they could. now you have the fallout of this, which i think was avoidable. >> is there just to the just dial back a second, is there a reason to think that chen actually planned his escape to coincide on the eave of hillary clinton and tim geitner's visit? >> you know, it is certainly possible because the dates of that vitsit were well known. but i actually think that it's probably unrelated. >> really? >> you know, we won't know for quite some time. dissidents sometimes try to time their actions in connection with visits from the u.s. but we will find out later on this one. >> so how does the add miles per hourstration strike a balance between
in the united states for maintaining the primacy of fossil fuels as our energy requirement. because they have the funding and the durable business model and the lobbyist to think in 30 or 40-year increments they tend to outperform our government which in washington by term limits at least rotates every ag years sometimes every four years. so they have a strategy to outlast washington that has proved i think more important to the actual energy economy that we live in than the decorations of various presidents who come and gone. >> you certainly have done extensive reporting on this you report about 90% of exxon's pac giving went to republicans, unlike other actual large corporations that give 50/50 contributions to democrats. how has exxon dealt with this democratic administration. has it hurt them to be aligned with republicans so closely? >> i think to some extent it has hurt them. they have issues in front of them like fraccing regulations where having a more trusting access-driven relationship with the obama administration will help them. you made a very sophisticat
and the idea you are going to hold the full faith and credit of the united states at a time of enormous economic peril hostage for non-negotiable demands and actually intend on having the declement breached is something we have not seen before. it happens once and standard and pours says, gee, the processes doesn't give us any confidence in the future. we are downgrading you. now, just yesterday, we have speaker boehner saying, okay. we are going to do it again. >> you talk about when he first came on, he had 58 votes in the senate. the republicans are fond of saying, control of congress. al franken was not seated in that first year, which denied him the 60th vote and then ted kennedy died. right? >> exact rightly right. a short period of time in which democrats had -- >> relatively very short period of time. >> it was enough to get through the original package of healthcare. >> right. >> of course then they lost kennedy's seat and had to resolve it. >> so give me, how do you fix the problem, you guys? and start with: how do you fix the problem that we
, they were poorly thought out. we have to realize that barack obama is the president of the united states, not the president of african americans. >> so in a second time he is going to strive to have a majority in congress, which might give him some freedom to do what he would otherwise be inclined to do. and what might that be on behalf of the african american community to satisfy people that he really is living up to some of those expectations? >> i think he would be able to do more in terms of education, target circumstances and educations, as much based on class as race and ethnicity. that would be very difficult for him to do at this point, principally because he would be accused of favoring the african american communitior urban centers. i think there are things he is going to be able to do relative to the skill set and other kinds of options and opportunities that these young people have. >> let me ask you a personal question, because you have an amazing history, and you were recruited by professional sports teams, and you decided you were going to get your ph
, and it's probably unseemly for the president of the united states to pose for the body of bin laden. of course george w. bush when he was running for office he had his arm around the guy at ground zero. >> mission accomplished. you don't think for him to say in a subtle way, yeah i do this. >> that wasn't very subtle. subtlety doesn't go into politics. >> it's shocking that somebody would trumpet their achievement and the other side to take credit for it. >> it's a scary world right now. >> who is that? >> who worried you more osama bin laden or whoever is running korea with a bunch of nukes. it's tough to be a dictator these days you either have to have oil, nukes, or secret service operatives. >> you have a huge amount of change in leadership in the middle east. you have this huge problem in syria, and this weekend we learned about another incident with the chinese disdent who has been harbored by the american embassy, and hilary clinton is on her way to try to figure out how to thread the needle. how do you balance that. >> what kind of house would that be? >>

is not acceptable anywhere in the united states -- and shut this argument down. >> so why won't he say something publicly that this is wrong? publicly implore grenell to come back? why won't he demonstrate his backbone on this, if he really believes that. >> that's the point i was just saying. there has been a fumble. they can correct this. there's still enough time where the candidate -- >> are you calling him to do that? >> we already have. so that's not news. and the thing is for -- to move forward is to actually stand up for employment, non-discrimination policies in the workplace. discrimination in the workplace anywhere is unacceptable. >> absolutely. [ overlapping speakers ] >> sorry. >> i'm so sorry, because i'm so fascinated by this, mr. cooper. we were talking about this in the war room this morning, and we just don't -- we don't understand why the log cabin republicans feel at all welcome in the republican party. we would tell you on the democratic side, come on over just be part of us. why do you have to sit there and take it from the far right extremes, and have
people voted and they voted in the president of the united states. >> and what was also in addition to the large voter turnout was the millennials are a civic generation. and like the gi generation, they tend to be very unified in their behavior, and millennials voted about two to one. >> okay. so there has been a lot of talk about this generation having a lot of apathy. what is going to happen in this election with them? >> i think mike would like to make a prediction on that. >> oh. prediction here! >> right. >> first. >> first prediction here. love it. >> let's look at 2008 first of all. in 2008 there are 95 million millennials, about 40% or 39 million or so were of voting edge, so again, about 30% were eligible to vote, about 52% did turn out to vote. about 20 million millennials voted over two to one for barack obama, and that meant they accounted for a 7 million vote bulge out of roughly that he defeated john mccain by. now 60% of millennials will be eligible to vote. that comes out to be just under 58 million. figuring a little more conservatively that may

are above 65, i expect the next president of the united states is going to be president obama, but we've got our work cut out for us. we have to invest in register that vote, mobilizing them getting them to the polls. i have also seen other poles that say they are not as excited about the election so we are going to have to get them excited on the issues. >> how do we do that? >> tell the story. 9 million people will benefit from the president's medical plan. 2 million people out of poverty because of his stimulus. 150 latinos in, in college because of pel grants that the president helped to fund. those are some ways to do it on the issues. >> and on the potentially dangerous side, mr. vice president vice president, you were a very early supporter of gay marriage. obviously, mr. mayor, you were as well. mr. president, do you believe that that risks in some way low lowering the enthusiasm among the highland park highland park and the african-american community? >> i actually doubt that because it has become a basic core civil rights issue. and i think wh
